Finish It Up Friday ~ American Jane

I told you this was shaping up to be a quick finish! Daughter #2 and hubby indulged me in taking a few out door pics while out and about.

This top was pieced from two charm packs and some yardage when I was still in Arizona. The fabric is a very old American Jane line called Fairy Tales or something like that. The small squares finish at 1.5 inches. 


I love this backing fabric.



ETA: A free pattern for a similar quilt is available for Cloud 9 Fabrics here



Have a great day!
